You can stop rubbing your eyes now… it really is one of my shots!
This giant robot is actually an old image of a kiddies fairground ride at Miyazawako in Japan, shot from a low angle into the sun for dramatic effect.
Today I dug it out and spent about 3 hours post processing it,- magic erasers, patching & cloning, HDR, Orton, various gradient fills, tweaks to saturation, contrast, brightness & opacity…
WHY???… because the trees and other fairground rides in the background were really annoying AND I thought it was about time I taught myself how to do more than just add borders in Photoshop.
